Dreams Fulfilled

All my life I have wanted a big family, and unless you've been sleeping while reading my blog, you know I know have one, two brothers, sister in laws, new aunt & uncle, a couple cousins (one I met this past week), a mom, and 3 nephews and 1 niece. And a new Gramma & a Quinton.

I wonder all these years, I dreamed, and wished, and prayed for a family. All these years. How many years I wanted someone to be a real aunt and uncle to my daughter, not a great or a friedn you call aunt and uncle. I had almost (ALMOST) given up hope, thinking that they only way that would happen is if I got married, and lately I've almost (ALMOST) given up hope on that too. And BAM! I get that family I've always wished for.

It's pretty amazing. God's timing. He knows just when the timing is right for the puzzle to all be put together, it's super cool.

I find that the more I submit to Him, the more the blessing come, or maybe the blessings have always been there, it's when I am on my knees that I see them more clearly.

James 4:10 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up

James 4:15 15Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that."
